  1. My SA just called and my monogram shimmer Halo has arrived! Since I am leaving town for school in a few weeks, he wanted to make sure I could come in and choose the colour myself. I'm so excited but I can't take it home with me today! I will try and find out exact release dates and see if other FW pieces have arrived! Stay tuned!

  10. The international release date for Monogram Shimmer is September 1st so they are not allowed to sell before this date but honestly I wouldn't be suprised as some SA's are so desperate to sell (see damier graphite).. In our store we are under strict orders but others, especially in the US aren't..
     
  11. I hope you can take some pics for us!
     
  12. ooohh I'm soo excited for you jelly!!!
     
  13. Ok I'm back!!! No pics and no purchases because as Habibty said, the official release date is Sept 1st so my SA just wanted me to see the Halo and Comete IRL and pick which colour I wanted.

    I have to say, I'm much more impressed by the Halo IRL! I was pleasantly surprised! It was a lot bigger than I thought (it's bigger than it looks in my sig pic, although I know that models are really tall and generally have big hands) and it sort of smooshes in the middle kind of like Nimbus PM, so that may be why it looks smaller than it really is. It's bigger than the limelight GM I would say (or roughly equal), and definitely wider, so it can hold a fair bit. The strap is really short though, so it pretty much has to be hand held.

    The material feels very similar to the motard - sort of slippery and plasticky but also with a leathery texture underneath, if that makes any sense. Overall, the bag is quite light, although the tassel is substantial and the metal piece on the tassel definitely has some weight to it.

    I was most impressed by the peach colour! I will try to describe it. In my eyes, it definitely looks PINK, however it's very silvery and shimmery, almost pearlized. So if I had to compare it with something, I would say it is like pearlized pink eyeshadow. It's absolutely gorgeous. I'm glad it's not bronze at all. It's shimmery enough so that it's difficult to distinguish it from silver if the two are not side-by-side, if you can imagine that. The silver definitely has a whitish sheen.

    The comete is quite large. I was surprised by how wide it is. IMHO the shape is pretty awkward because it would jut out from the body if the strap was resting on the shoulder. If I could compare the shape to something, a shoebox comes to mind in terms of both shape and dimensions. It's soft and unstructured though, so it will smoosh down in the middle. If anyone was wondering, the tassels are NOT detachable. They are stuck on with 2 very solid loops.

    Hope that helps a bit more! Personally I am in love with the Halo and can't wait to receive mine via Fed Ex just after Sept 1st! :yahoo:

    I asked about the black speedy cube but my store had not received it yet.
